Finding My Religion

It is common for older people approaching death to find religion. With that thought in mind I have recently joined a church, and decided to resume writing the blog. The back is much better and in other regards the circumstances in my life have improved considerably because I rediscovered something more valuable than all the money in the world, a true friend. I continue to be amazed at the number of people who read the AW, and flabbergasted by those who continue to become “followers,” even though there is nothing to “follow.” In addition, several readers have communicated via email the hope I will continue writing. I intend to focus more on Chess, and stop writing about politics and the Fools In Power. F.I.P.s come and go with the wind, but Chess endures.

Praise Bacon

Are you tired of religious people being seen as morally superior to skeptics & atheists? Of religions getting special privileges in the law, because they’re perceived as better than secular non-profit organizations?

As a protest, a group of skeptic and atheist friends had a fantastic idea in 2010. Let’s start a real, legal church with a funny name, and then demand the same rights as mainstream religions:

We oppose supernatural claims. We are skeptics and atheists. In our religion, we doubt religion.
We fight discrimination. Atheists and non-believers are not inferior and should not be hated and marginalized.
We raise money for charity and are striving to be the most generous church in the world.
Our officiants perform legal weddings for member’s friends and family and always for free. How joyful!
We expose religious privileges as silly by claiming the same rights for Bacon.
Praise Bacon If you prefer to praise Vegetarian Bacon or Turkey Bacon that is fine!

We now have over 20,000 members from around the world and have performed hundreds of weddings. Join us! Raise your voice in protest, and to Praise Bacon!

Hail Bacon,
Full of Grease,
The Lard is with thee.
Blessed are thou amongst piggies,
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Bacon God.
Holy Baconess, mother of Bacon God,
Pray for our Gluttoness
Now and at the hour of our premature Death.
Amen! Praise the Lard.

    Is America becoming Godless? The number of people who have no religion has risen 266 per cent – one third of the population – in three decades
